Camping in Joshua Tree 2016

Brad Lesley Gaia Joshua Tree
Last year was my (LL) first time camping in Joshua Tree National Park. Camping at JTree had already become an annual Memorial weekend tradition amongst Brad and his friends, so it was an exciting return for them. Then, to make this incredible place even more special, Brad proposed to me here at White Tank Campground. So, now one year and a wedding later, we returned with a few of our friends to grill, hike, lay like lizards and literally unplug!

So, with the Jeep packed to the bursting point (Brad tetris-ed the sh*t out of it), we trudged through LA traffic. Arriving later than we would have wished, we checked every single campsite until we found a spot at the very last one: Hidden Valley Campground. Slightly bummed that it wasn’t at our special White Tank (but thrilled we got a spot) we set up camp and grilled some sausage before turning in.

Our friends arrived the next morning and the relaxing, book reading and bouldering began. The plants in Jtree are specific to Joshua Tree.

Joshua Trees are only found here in this National Park, but here are a bunch of desert cactus that were also growing out in the wild.

Gaia was pretty much (per the norm) unimpressed.
